Detroit police want your help to track down two robbery suspects who hit a Family Dollar store in Detroit Tuesday night.

It happened around 7 p.m. on Warren Avenue. Police say two guys walked into the store, one wearing a distinctive Celtics jersey, and spent nearly 40 minutes inside.

At first, the video shows them walking around, shopping for clothes before they strike. A man in a dark colored shirt starts waving around a gun, taking money from two registers. The other guy takes off with his cart full of clothes.

Workers tell Action News that one person robbed the store at gunpoint just 12 days ago. Police are trying to figure out if these guys are connected to other armed robberies throughout the city.

A worker, who didn't want to be identified, tells us, " I'm scared...keep looking over my shoulder. Don't want to work the register anymore."

She went on to say she doesn't understand why Family Dollar stores continue to be targets. If you have information, call Detroit police right away.
